Coleman seeks to vacate another order, Franken opposes uncounting ballots
While the contest court voluntarily vacated its own order of yesterday that had struck the testimony of a Coleman witness, the Coleman team is asking the court via a Rule 60.02 motion to vacate its Feb. 10 order that granted summary judgment to some of the Nauen voters. Coleman alleges that these votes were accepted despite not meeting the standard for legally cast ballots that the court laid out in its Feb. 13 order. Meanwhile, Franken filed this memorandum opposing Coleman’s motion to have the Feb. 13 order applied to all absentee ballots cast in the Senate race.
